50_Viral_Photos_Posted_by_Fitness_Facebook_Pages_Killer_Examples-lsviral photos from fitness facebook pagesAre you in the fitness industry?

Do you want to crush it on Facebook?

Good... you're in the right place.

This post will give you deep insights into which kinds of Facebook photos go viral for fitness related pages.

And these insights aren't based on my opinion.

They're based on cold hard numbers -- specifically, the Like, Comment & Share numbers from thousands of fitness photos.

I selected 50 fitness pages from multiple sectors in the fitness industry, including:

  • Magazines
  • Celebrities / Personalities / Coaches
  • Websites
  • Blogs
  • Supplements

Then I used Post Planner's crazy powerful Viral Photos feature to crunch the numbers & show me the #1 most VIRAL photo from each of the 50 pages.

The results are below.

So if you're in the fitness industry & you want your next Facebook post to go viral, then post a photo similar to the ones below. :)
